Refined sodium sesquicarbonate, or S-Carb® is a pure, free-flowing crystalline product commonly used in dairy cows to maintain rumen pH and poultry to maintain electrolyte balance. Genesis Alkali has been an established supplier of S-Carb® to the feed industry for over 25 years.

What It’s Used For

Genesis Alkali is a leading producer of refined sodium sesquicarbonate (S-Carb®). S-Carb® is a crystalline product that is non-hydroscopic and produces less dust than other commercially available sodium buffers.

In lactating dairy cow diets, S-Carb® is used as a buffer to maintain rumen pH, reduce risk of butterfat depression in low-fiber diets, and aid in fiber digestibility. S-Carb® is utilized in poultry diets to maintain electrolyte balance, improve heat stress tolerance, and to reduce wetness in litter. It also improves eggshell quality when used in a layer diet.
